Pacific Dehradun Covid
Pacific Dehradun 2

Dear Guest,
Greetings from Pacific Dehradun!
Due to the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic, the Uttarakhand Government has announced guidelines for visitors travelling to the state. Guests visiting Uttarakhand from outside the state have to follow the below procedures:

Travelers entering Uttarakhand who are fully vaccinated (two doses) with the second dose having been taken 15 days prior to travel can enter the state without requiring an RT-PCR negative test report or Rapid Antigen Test. Travelers are, however, required to register on the Dehradun Smartcity website and take a printout of the E-pass. You will also be required to upload the hotel voucher and mention the hotel address in the E-pass.

Travelers who are not fully vaccinated are required to get an RT-PCR test or Rapid Antigen Test done no more than 72 hours prior to travel and to carry the same with you along with the hotel voucher and E-pass.

As per the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and WHO, we are strictly following the precautions and safety procedures to control COVID-19 and to offer you a safe and secure stay at our property.
